Currently I'm more inclined to wait for the production version, seeing the issues on the DM41x beta units.

Btw, why didn't you use the forum poll feature for this poll ? Depending on the poll options, this could have provided a direct count of the minimum number of pilot units needed, as well as the ratio of people preferring to wait for production units.

Remember who wanted to have this feature? ;)

Though here, we just want to know what we asked in post #1; and we want to learn it this way. And rest assured, the number is still well countable digitally (literally) so far so there's no need for complex analysis yet. 8-)

BTW, electromechanically, the WP 43S shall be identical to the DM42 if I understand Michael correctly. There will be "only" another surface and a different firmware.

I'd like one! Hard to resist an interesting product with low serial number...

Why not, but will this new calc be more reliable than DM41X is ?

Just a question, not an insult, or a "Frenchy" attitude (I am not French, but Britton from Brittany).

So will this new calc be more reliable than BETA DM41X is ?

If the answer is Yes : Ok I would buy...

If the answer is No : I'll be waiting for next batches ...

Sorry because this calc seems very promising as a soft right now, but what about hardware ???

I know this is not a real answer, but I would like to be sure of my "investment" (hem let's say my buying compulsive stuff) :lol:

Based on past behavior, it is highly likely I would wish to purchase one.
